What to Doc: Yes, you’ve heard correctly that My Octopus Teacher on Netflix is a really good documentary that helps put things in our own lives into perspective. It also works, if you want it to, as a really bizarre episode of the Bachelorette.

+ What to Read: My parents and my friend Bob have been telling me for years that I should be reading Daniel Silva’s Gabriel Allon series. They were right (again). It’s like Fauda meets James Bond. The first book in the series is called The Kill Artist.

+ What to Hear: Let’s cue up a couple of young women singer songwriters for the weekend. First, check out Phoebe Bridgers album Punisher (start with the song Kyoto). And then try Fake it Flowers from beabadoobee (even her name is a decent song). Start with Care.
